As we navigate a changing world with constantly shifting boundaries, we need to take on board new possibilities on all levels: physical, psychological and spiritual.

The London Group and Friends present an outdoor exhibition of artworks from over 20 international artists. Curated by Almuth Tebbenhoff and Cadi Froehlich, the show explores the process of transformation; be that of matter, ideas or self-perception. Questions of how we interact with nature and our environment, with each other and with ourselves will come alive with this feast of art in the spacious gardens of St John’s Waterloo.

METAMORPHOSIS
Photography

Metamorphosis can mean the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly or in Kafka’s case from man into an insect. This show features diptychs by international photographers. Pairs of images are hung together; each depicts a process of binary change. Co-curated by Paul Tecklenberg and Darren Nisbett, with 14 London Group members and two guests includes Canadian artist Maureen O’Connor and Andrew Cooper, a recent graduate from University of East London.

“The age of automation will be the age of do it yourself”, Marshall McLuhan

More and more we are being asked to do things ourselves. From shopping to car insurance, services that traditionally required a human representative have been redesigned so that customers complete their business interacting only with machines. Some might argue this gives us more flexibility and choice and while others see us all becoming unpaid employees, required to do the work in order to access what we need.  Taking its lead from the check-out counters of supermarkets and petrol station forecourts, this exhibition brings together moving image works that respond to this idea of ‘self-service’. Works were contributed by members of the London Group, invited artists and artists chosen from an open call in response to the title.

​Curated by London Group members David Theobald and Genetic Moo

Exhibiting artists: Katerina Athanasopoulou, Stephen Carley LG, Sandra Crisp LG, Vardit Goldner, Geeske Janßen, Helena Klakocar, Daniel McKee, Micheál O’Connell/MOCKSIM LG, Genetic Moo LG, Charlotte C Mortensson LG,  Svetlana Ochkovskaya, Piotr Piasta, Duncan Poulton, Sue Ridge, James Rosamond, Eric Schockmel, Alcaeus Spyrou, David Theobald LG.
